Fold-Flat Sheet Goods Mover Woodworking Plan

Made from just one sheet of 3/4" Baltic birch plywood, a handful of hardware, and four locking swivel caster (an investment of about $65), this handy project makes transporting sheet goods around the shop a breeze. You simply tip the rack to vertical, rest a sheet upright on it, then roll the mover to your tablesaw or bench. Next tilt the rack horizontal and slide the sheet onto the worksurface. At the tablesaw, you may want to push the mover to one side of the saw and use it as an infeed support to help steady the sheet as you cut.

Feel free to use any hardwood you like to customize the set.

Have-it-your-way Bookcases Woodworking Plan

Though distinctly different, these three bookcases share a common carcase. The classic cherry version includes a door, the maple country bookcase rests on feet; and the oak version has a profiled base and a plywood back instead of slats.
